Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to compare, contrast, and map the 2016 Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) Standards to the 2017 International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) Nanjing Statements.Methods: Three members of the Global Pharmacy Education Special Interest Group conducted a review of the ACPE Standards and Nanjing Statements to identify which Nanjing Statements mapped to the ACPE Standards, and vice versa. Two additional reviewers evaluated the results to ensure face validity.Results: Seventy-two of the 75 Nanjing elements were mapped to 94 of the 160 ACPE elements. Nanjing Statement Clusters 2 and 6 had the highest rates of matched statements, at 83% and 94% respectively. ACPE Standards and key elements that had 100% of matches with the Nanjing Statements included Standards 3, 11, and 18.Conclusion: These preliminary findings may help educators streamline national and global competencies. Ultimately, accrediting bodies, professional organisations, and pharmacy educators may benefit from identifying strengths and areas for improvement.
